How to work out your points and grades:

 

  1. Look at TABLE 1 and look at the number of points you get for a pass, merit or distinction at a certain level.

  2. Look at Table 2 and look at how many points you get for a pass, merit or distinction for EACH unit.
    eg Unit 1, Communication is 10 credits at level 3. So Pass = 70 point, Merit = 80 points and Distinction = 90 points.
    (NB Unit 39 is level 2)

  3. Find out what grade you got for each unit, and use TABLE 2 to calculate how many points you got for EACH unit.

  4. Repeat this for each of the units.

  5. Add up all the points.

  6. Look at Table 3 to convert your points into a grade and UCAS points.
    eg if you got 1400 points overall, you would get an MMM and 240 UCAS Points.
